| Home > How Online DVD Rental Works
Select the movies you want to watch and add them to your online queue. Most of the online DVD rental service providers have DVD selections of over 50,000 titles, so you can choose virtually any movies that have been released.
The DVD rental company will rush the movies to you via United States Postal Service. Depending on where you live and service provider you sign up with, you can expect your DVDs to arrive in 1 to 3 business days. The shipping is free.
When the DVDs arrive, simply watch at your own pace. You can keep the movies for as long as you want. There are no due dates or late fees.
When you are done watching, just put the DVDs into the prepaid envelopes and mail them back. Your next available DVDs will be shipped to you as soon as the returned DVDs are received.
You pay a flat monthly fee ranging from $4.99 to $17.99 depending on the plans. It allows you to rent unlimited movies each month. There is no long term contract to sign, the service is on month-by-month basis. If you decide to cancel the service, you can do so online anytime. Some companies even allow you to put your account on hold for a certain period of time so that you don't get charged for the months that you decide not to rent movies.
